    That's a lot of prep to make that one run. Cool none the less.

    It's not so bad. Faster than cutting one at a time if you have a lot to do at once. If you get a long one once every armload or so, toss the long ones in the sawbuck and cut when it's full. If we're talking half a dozen splits per cord then chop saw is the answer.

    Does don't seem it could be any quicker. Your still handling each piece in tithe same manor just cutting abode and reload. Put a stop. Block on a chop saw times should be pretty close.

    I just think ,use the right tool for the job, chainsaw, and multiple cuts at once makes sense.
    A cheep chop saw maybe but , I'm not throwing down firewood on my finely tuned miter saws in my wood shop
